Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Rubus mollissimus

A regional endemic, Rubus mollissimus has a strong presence in SW43 and also on the Isles of Scilly (R.W.Gould, pers.comm.). It was found in 1998 in Poltair Hospital Wood (SW43K, R.W.Gould), and proved to be frequent on moors as at Trengwainton (SW43L, 1998, R.W.Gould), around Lanyon Quoit (SW43G) and the Men-an-tol (SW43M).
